    The Cats ecosystem offers mature named abstractions providing algebraic laws virtually identical to those offered by Haskell and PureScript and that have stood the test of time, at the cost of relying on a "design pattern" approach to implementation you have to squint a bit to see ("typeclasses" based on higher-kinded types and implicit arguments) and that sometimes doesn't play nicely with Scala's colored local type inference. The selling point of this, coupled with parametricity ("tagless-final style"), is the ability to reason algebraically about your code.
